derek listens to things.

A thoroughly excellent compilation of most of Nothing Painted Blue’s 7-inch singles, EPs, compilation appearances, etc. I collected much of this material on vinyl (via eBay) before getting this CD, not really knowing what was and wasn’t on it. The first Nothing Painted Blue song I ever heard was a radio broadcast version of “Complications” on a 1995 Scat Records promo / sampler cassette. The info on the J-card pronounced the track as appearing on the band’s forthcoming / as-yet-untitled singles etc. anthology CD, but it ended up not making the cut, which is kind of a minor tragedy. There are a handful of other compilation tracks from the period represented not collected here (and, of course, others from after this CD came out), of which I’ve managed to collect some, but not all.
